Alexander Wang Model Katherine Moore Changed Her Hair--And It Changed Her Career

The 18-year-old model is taking fashion week by storm, thanks to hairstylist Guido Palau.

On Saturday evening, 18-year-old model Katherine Moore became one of the most talked-about models of the season when she opened the Alexander Wang Fall 2016 show thanks to her cropped, bright red hair. The hairstyle was brand new–and came courtesy of legendary stylist Guido Palau and colorist Victoria Hunter. “I really cannot thank Alexander Wang, Anita Bitton, Guido and their teams enough for seeing something in me and allowing me the opportunity to open this amazing show,” she says. “When they told me their vision for my hair I was so terrified for about 5 minutes and then realized: it’s just hair. I’m 18 years old and it’s time to have some fun and explore a new side of me. I think it’s amazing. I would do it again in a heartbeat!” Here, she explains the rest of her approach to beauty.

Your look in three words:
Fierce as f***.  Just kidding! Fiery. Unique. Brave.

Never leave the house without:
Pomegranate Carmex, a healthy snack, and coffee in hand.

Beauty from the inside out:
Nutrition is so important. I eat every three hours or so to keep my metabolism going, and protein is everything! A healthy balance of protein, greens, complex carbs, and healthy fats makes all the difference.

Exercise regime:
Yoga, Pilates, and weight training!

Skincare splurge:
I really don’t splurge much on skincare products. I have select things that work so well for me, and luckily they are easy and affordable.

Favorite hair professional:
Guido Palau. He is the mastermind behind my new look!!

Pharmacy find:
Neutrogena facial wipes. They’re everything, especially during fashion week.

In-tub must read:
Amy Poehler’s Yes Please.

Fragrance of choice:
Byredo Inflorescence.

Best advice from mom:
Do what you love, and nothing else.

Best advice from the pros:
Devon Windsor told me at the Milk Makeup launch party to always be true to my own vision as to how I want to present myself. I think that is so important.

Beauty icons:
Jerry Hall and Karen Elson.
